Serious brain injuries can have tragic consequences for the victim and their family. An accident can happen in seconds, and a person who sustains a brain injury as the result of an accident or incident can have their life be turned upside down forever.
The brain can sustain several different types of injuries depending on the type of force and the amount of force that impacts an individual’s head. The type of injury the brain sustains may affect one functional area of the brain or many different areas of the brain. Damage to the brain may result in impairments in physical, cognitive, speech/language and behavioral functioning.
ARE YOU THE VICTIM OF A BRAIN INJURY?
The most common types of brain injuries include:
- Concussion – a concussion is caused when the brain receives trauma from an impact or a sudden momentum or movement change. This is the most common type of head injury. A concussion can be caused by a direct blow to the head, a violent shaking of the head or the force of a whiplash injury. Both open and closed head injuries can cause a concussion. A concussion may or may not show up on a diagnostic imaging test.
- Contusion – a bruise (bleeding) on the brain.
- Coup-Contrecoup Injury- are contusions that are both at the site of impact and on the opposite side of the brain.
- Traumatic Brain Injury – is damage to brain tissues by external mechanical forces or motion. It is usually characterized by a period of altered consciousness that can be brief or long. Traumatic brain injuries include Closed Head Injuries, Open Brain Injuries, and Acquired Brain Injuries.
